Former Arkansas governor refutes report citing source who said he would transfer the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee on Friday night denied that he has been asked to serve as America’s ambassador to Israel by President-elect Donald Trump.
“Media buzz that I was named Amb to Israel is NOT true. Was never discussed with PE Trump,” Huckabee tweeted in response to a Daily Mail report citing a presidential transition official who said that Huckabee would be the United States’ top diplomat in Israel during the Trump administration.
The Daily Mail had initially cited the source as saying Huckabee’s first order of business as ambassador would be transferring the US embassy in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
